    Up for trade is a 1998 Rickenbacker 4003 with black binding and hardware.
    I picked this bass up in a trade here on talkbass about a year ago. The bass comes with the original hardshell case and pretty much all the original paperwork. I would feel very comfortable saying that the bass and case are in near mint condition. Close to flawless. It's very light weight. 8.5 lbs on my bathroom scale. The neck is definitely on the slimmer side, compared to other Ricks I have played.
    The bridge pickup cover has been removed. However, I can definitely put it back on if wanted. I may be willing to throw some extra cash in if the right deal came along.
    I definitely prefer lightweight basses and wouldn't really be interested in anything over 9lbs. I am also only interested in 4 string basses.
    Basses I may be interested in are.

    I just got the bass back from the music store where I brought it in for a set up. The Tech tighten the screw to tight on the neck pickup and made as small crack in the bottom of the pick guard. Everything still functions as it should, but I just wanted to post this for full disclosure. Besides this the bass is pretty much mint! ImageUploadedByTalkBass1379967520.444376.
